portion is closed. commissioner moore. >> commissioner moore: i'd like to put to the record that this is a mandatory discretionary review, and the issues, which the residential design team has addressed are those typically addressed in a mandatory discretionary review. i want to say that i think the review is extremely thorough, creative, and supportive of those ideas that are important to us as a commission. i want to comment taking it down from the top, the 15 foot setback from the street is something which this commission has asked the department to consistently implement. it's not 11 feet. it's not 12 feet. it's 15 feet where it occurs on the street side of a property which is larger than two stories, because this particular setback should not be seen from the front. so it's really not an issue to question, but just to accept because this commission has used this rule and over the years had the department strong implement the same 15 feet wherever that type of condition occurs. on the second one, regarding the garage door, that is also a guideline which this commission c
. >> commissioner moore. >>i would defer to somebody more experienced but i believe that yom kippur and rosh shana are more important than chanukkah and if anybody can comment on that and i think respecting that other than chanukkah is a more important thing to do but i ask for other people's guidance on that. >> commissioner wu. >>i would also be supportive and emerging september 5 and december 5 and taking them off. i sprawt support commissioner borden's point and difficult to have every thursday. i'm not complaining exactly, but looking at the calendar from february to the end of may it's every single thursday so whether for 2013 or for the future i think it's just important to think about work load and just recognize there is no break. we get the packets at the end of thursday and work through the next thursday in addition to everyone's other job. >> commissioner antonini. >> well, when you accept the position on the planning commission it comes with the territory and we have a very important business that we handle and protects in san francisco get delayed enough from continuances of other
just went through. commissioner moore. >> the central corridor plan hasn't gone through any kind of rebus discussion and according to prime time time and it's way way behind and while i'm not saying that nothing is constant but change i have to believe that there is not any plan that could never be challenged in the future and i think at this moment this plan deserves the support the planning commission given what it's supporting here and how it's doing that and special use district politics and they will do that and there is always something else people have in the back of their mind at this moment and i think it is what it is and the other plan has just provided enough detail for us for us to provide restrictive or conditional language in into what we are reporting today. >> commission ir? >>> i do not understand the issue but i suggest that you take the language and continue to explore and examine and go get rid of the language that is not inappropriately and in a way that people find it inappropriately and ultimately this commission will define what is appropriate and i d
four to three with commissioners moore, sag guya and voting against. >> i heard there was cp to allow ground floor reds terrible mr. teeing is that something that you were putting before us here,. >> sure and it's something that i'm hypothecate putting before you as a package because of the affordable housing trust fund created a scenario where we could not increase affordable housing requirements lieu a new rezonings and legislation and through certain exemptions one being that the site was getting 20% bump in gross developable area the problem with ct and the regional commercial district is while they permanent housing on every floor, on the ground floor of large project, they restrict it and they don't permit it and so, to meet that 20% criteria in the charter, we would need to remove that planning prohibition of residential uses in the district on large sites on the ground floor and then in the other piece to that puzzle was also amendment aiming the zoning map resolution to remove the three language parcelels from the split designation because they would not be eligible for tha
. >> commissioner moore this plan was reviewed under exemptions being in the overall transit city plan and so there have been there was extensive collaboration with the planning staff including the transportation staff on the specifics of the design and as well as mitigation measure to ensure that properly mitigation of that area and one other thing that i think point to the fruit of that design wore work is that they have actually enjoyed a designed parking area that we don't usually see in buildings and so that reduces the pedestrian curb cut. >> i appreciate your explanation and that is a good way to look at it in a more comprehensive way there is one other comment that does not address itself to you particularly but i want to talk to staff about the top. we have have 12 centers coming in and what i am having a little hard time with that speaks to the buildings is that these almosts the fire elements the bank of china in hong kong you cannot miss thinking of the building when you see this design it's impossible for anybody who has been in hong kong or looks at architectural publication
ubs, but that is certainly something that some of us are looking for. >> commissioner moore. >> both comments by commissioner suguya and commissioner wu are spot-on. it is something that none of us have experienced. however, the guidance given to us and the interpretation to us by the zoning administrator that this should follow the typical timeframes by which projects come back is what indeed i feel comfortable supporting because that is by the rules that we work and that is what the public is expecting. i would suggest that it is indeed changed and movement on the project. however, until the process has been fully worked out with the neighborhood regarding all of the issues that were briefly touched on by the people presenting, it's time to do it right this time. as we always said, every project has neighborhood support and the department's guidance has indeed created that and we're agreeing with it, then the project should hopefully be on successful way for approval. >> commissioner suguya, do you have another comment? >> i did. to the zoning administrator, interpretation of t
. . >> thank you any further public comment? seeing none, public comment is closed, commissioner moore. >>> the aspects of this project which are interesting and intriguing to me one is the history of family and the long standing evolve in the communities to all of the developmental things that we hear about it's really a great story that is not as much why we approve a project but i appreciate you talk about it and secondly the community support and outreach does remarkable and i couldn't be happier to see it embedded where it is and thirdly, i'm very intriguinged about the design because it speaks so much to the product it has is and so, i move too approve. >> second. >>> commissioner borden. >> yeah, icommission moore shared a lot of my feels and i do not live far from that site and i think it's ads to community and clearly over the years obviously this family has contributed so much so the community and iniad it safer and a better neighborhood and is continuing to do so and i thank you for doing had a and so not only is the family great but you odd deas a company is great a

. thank you. >> mr. moore. >> my name is dick morgan, i have been engaged in lake merced for 13 years. and i have spent thousands of volunteer hours on lake merced. when i first got engaged it was about 10 to 12 feet deep. it was rapidly going to a lake merced mud flat. there was denial and delay by commissioner and staff at that time. only when cal-pal brought to the commission in 2001, that the community finally had some clout to enforce a permanent solution. cal-trod still have that power. it's not up to this commission. they can go back to the state quality board with that permanent solution. i joined judge cahill's mediation on the lake merced issues. and a lot of progress was in that. the lake merced water task force in 2000, recommended almost everything that has been done. these were volunteers who knew what needed to be done to restore the water quality and lake level. other activi tiactivities and a collectively call ourselves cowboys. the golf course's daily water plant, and west side hydrological model, and the wells, and saltwater intrusion models. some gathering dust, la
>> commissioner moore? >> i just wanted to make sure that since we do not have any action items that all we can do is comment. which is guided by first the proper interpretation by the department should be guiding comments. i don't think we should be sitting today designing architecture on something that is a progress report. you basically call it "informational." and i take it as an informational item. i am positive about the movement, but i don't feel that any of us should be in any position to comment on the specifics of design. at the core of all of this and will be the response to those concerns which are neighborhood concerns. we're not approving architecture. we're approving basically a project which starts with a change of land use. we're going from public to private. from public to residential. so i think we need to kind of stay on target relative to what messages we are potentially communicating here today. >> commissioner antonini? >> but to that end, most of what was pointed out as things under discussion by the neighborhood were the massing and the size of the building, and to
, commissioner moore. >> i am very interested and very supportive of this particular legislation. what i would like to ask and perhaps you are already doing it, i see diagrams of bike racks, which reflect more of the traditional approach to bike racks and a significant amount of theft, which is happening. i hope sfmta and yourself and the bicycle coalition will strongly investigate which types of bike racks and which types of locks provide the largest security? i just recently read an article where the police department themselves tried to recommend to bicyclists what to do. it's a question of staying in the dialogue of technology, new and improved bike racks, including the fact that people are starting to ride slightly more expensive bicycles than just the $10 rotterdam-type bicycle. with that, because it make thems feel more comfortable or safety people want assurance that those bicycle racks are safe. just like with your car, you don't want it falling over when someone else pulls their bike out. that there is a little bit of understanding of what it takes to park a bike properly and safel
. and especially as far as the solar panels are concerned. >> commissioner moore? >> i have a question for mr. lindsey, called process. this is the first time today that we are hearing that we are moving from a dr into a conditional use authorization. that by itself requires neighborhood notification is that correct? >> that is correct. >> has this neighborhood notification been issued to all the people with a sufficient amount of time? i would like to ask, please do not participate in my discussion with planning staff here. the reason why i'm asking is we had a holiday and we're moving back into holidays. for me it comes as a big surprise for a change in cu. i am very surprised. i kind of don't have a sense that the type of dialogue we normally encourage in the cu between an applicant and the neighborhood has been done to the extent that it answers those kinds of questions. for example, the issue about the solar panels. they are 11' above the additional floor we're adding. that is a significantly taller building because we all know that solar panels are very significant and they are not
impact, if views are not protected, i don't think there is impact. >> commissioner moore? >> i don't think why we need to design an office building height, which is about 13', even 8' floor and 10' is perfectly fine. so i think the motion should consider lowering the upper floor to a 10' floor to ceiling height, which brings the upper floor to 11.1' and solar peanut butter panels are flat and we have something to consider. >> that is a proposed amendment? >> yes. >> we're talking about a total inez tenenbaum of 11.1. basically replicating the existing unit floor to ceiling height, which is very, very nice for a generously sized unit. and working on the solar panels to be in the flatter configuration. >> if the secretary is okay with it. i will second that amendment. >> second. >> commissioners you have a motion and second. amending the proposal to incorporate a floor to floor height no greater than 11' 1" and flat solar panels. (roll call ) >> so moved commissioners that motion passes 6-1. commissioners that will place you on your final regularly calendared item no. 17. 2

modification. >> second. >> commissioner moore. >> i have a couple of questions. i think under item five there is a certain amount of ambiguity to what is permitted storage in any residential building, renter, owner, permitted storage and garage. it's a very difficult issue. you can't store fire wood or cardboard boxes or paint cans or any of those things and it's very difficult to enforce even when it's not allowed to create potential other storage space within non used spaces which are provided potentially for share parking. i find that too vague. in addition to that motorcycles, scooters, other assisted movement cars could be there, but they shouldn't. i think there needs to be more definition on what permitted storage and other permitted uses means. >> there was a motion. there is a second. >> commissioners on the motion to approve as modified proposed by staff. commissioner tone. >> aye. >> commissioner board. >> aye. >> commissioner hillis. >> aye. >> commissioner moore. >> aye. >> commissioner sugaya. >> commissioner wu. >> commissioner president fong? >> aye. >> that passe
